    They say the Uni knot.

    Palomar knot is easy to tie and has not failed.

Not practical when on the water, but a good way to get your rods setup before a trip.

    And another vote for the palomar.
    Another vote for Palomar. And I use the braid inside 80# dacron trick also. I saw this a couple of years ago when I switched to braided line and have been very satisfied with the results.

    For joining braid to mono, if you intend to use a leader or something I use the Uni splice/knot. For attaching braid to a lure Palomar knot has not failed me yet. Using 20lb braid I have broken and straightened hooks out before the knot broke.

    I have used a milel of Power Pro mostly for Baja and Long Range trips.....Palomar is OK....I prefer the Uni-Knot but double the line first so you end up with a loop and a tag end all to be cut off......

    Many use a Bimini Twist to double the line but care must be taken with lines like Power Pro in that tight twisting seems to significantly weaken the line.....weakens it a lot!

    For a superior line, try Jerry Brown Line 1 Hollow Braid.......

    Palomar here, too. It is simple and strong and I have yet to have one fail. Here is a link to one of the many animated knot sites: knots
